The notation of these rhythm ars not exact. Throughout the piece Stochelo
is timing freely. Very lyrical and "floating" on the beat. This kind of playing
is especially suited to ballads.

This is a standard lick/idea Stochelo uses on major 7th and 6 chords. First
a signature major lick (beat 3 and 4 of bar 59) and then the minor triad
arpeggio of the relative minor key (in this case C- is the relative key of Eb).
You can find this in many solos here at the academy.
